Northwest Film Forum is excited to welcome back Gustafer Yellowgold, a multi-media performance of live music, animated illustrations and storytelling.
Gustafer (he's from the sun) and his menagerie of friends (an eel, a pet dragon named Asparagus, a bunch of mustard slugs, a tuxedo-clad pterodactyl) put on a show, presenting songs alongside large-screen animations with karaoke-style subtitles for early readers.
With its unique crossover appeal, the show has been an opening act for adult audiences at Wilco and The Polyphonic Spree concerts. Gustafer has even appeared off-Broadway in his own productions of Gustafer Yellowgold's Mellow Sensation and Gustafer Yellowgold's Infinity Sock.
His new CD/DVD Gustafer Yellowgold's Year in the Day finds this former sun resident enjoying his Minnesota woodland home and experiencing his own unique take on a year's worth of Earth holidays, both classic and unusual.
Tickets: $12/general, $9/members
